Wonderful Gift



Tomorrow is my birthday (I'll be 24...eek) and so this weekend has been full of lovely birthday celebrations and fun happenings. I haven't really taken many photos but here are a few quick shots of what I wore on Friday night when I went out with my parents and Ty for a lovely dinner at the Holland House. Which, by the way, I would really recommend to those who are visiting or live here in Nashville and haven't been. Especially if you enjoy a wonderfully mixed cocktail.



This beautiful 40's dress (which seems to never have been worn) was given me to by a darling blog reader Adrianne. It has quickly become my favorite dress and I know I'll be wearing it all the time. I mean, just look at that gorgeous print! *swoon* I about passed out when I received it in the mail. I need to get some better photos to really do it justice.

  6. Happy early birthday! What a gorgeous dress and there's NOTHING better than receiving something so dear as a gift. I love that your makeup coordinates perfectly with the shoes and the belt, a little silent-movie style beige cast to it all. Great look! :)

  13. First, happy birthday sweet girl! Seems like the celebrations have already been fab! I love that dress and I agree the print is to die for. Second, I have a few favorites but my top two off my head are a V pin from my friend Joanna and a Mother's Day brooch from my friend Brittany (both vintage bloggers). I am very sentimental so I treasure the things people gift to me. Btw, enjoy 24...its a beautiful age and beautiful time in your life. <> Bunny

  21. Such a fantastically lovely, cheerful forties frock and terrifically sweet birthday gift. I was given a vintage dress by a dear online friend a few months ago and am still a bit in awe of her thoughtfulness and generosity. Isn't it amazing when friends know you so well they can pick out vintage clothing you'll love and surprise you with it?
